As car technology becomes more advanced, thieves are using increasingly sophisticated methods to access your vehicle. The steering wheel lock is a tried and tested theft prevention device that keeps your car secure and can reduce your car insurance premiums. Here are some of the best on the market today.
If you’re looking for a steering wheel lock but don’t have a massive budget, then the Streetwize double hook lock could be the one for you.
Users have praised the double hook lock for its durable and weighty design, as well as its simple and quick installation. In addition to this; the bright yellow colour will stand out on most dashboards, making it a fantastic deterrent.
Stoplock is one of the oldest and most reliable manufacturers of steering wheel locks. The original is their most cost effective option and still a hardy piece of kit. Offering moderate protection and the noticeable yellow colour, the original is a classic that still does a great job.
One of the more expensive steering wheel locks, the Milenco High Security more than deserves its price tag. Branded with the ‘Sold Secure Approved’ sticker, only achievable after a series of rigorous tests by locksmiths, the Milenco is one of the hardest locks to crack.
It comes in the traditional yellow but also in a more subtle, though less noticeable, metallic option. Additionally, it doesn’t sit across the car horn like other models, making it adaptable to most steering wheels. Though, some reviews suggest that the heft of it isn’t ideal for soft or leather wheels as it can leave indents.
The second Stoplock on our list; the Pro performs as well as its relative and more. Boasting one of the strongest locks available, requiring specialist tools that will definitely make a racket, the Pro makes for a remarkable midrange option.
Stoplock also has a customer friendly 10 year warranty, suggesting a product its makers stand behind.
The most highly regarded (and expensive) steering wheel lock on the market, the Disklok has been the go to choice in anti-theft devices for over 30 years. Its unique design fits around the entirety of your steering wheel, making it harder to cut off or break. There is a bar as well to make it even more frustrating for thieves and the lock itself will spin if attacked.
The downsides, apart from the price, are that it is larger and more cumbersome than other models, making it harder to store when not using. Though, this is a small inconvenience when compared to the security this steering wheel lock provides.
